Timo Werner has agreed terms on a transfer to Bayern Munich, according to reports in Germany. The Germany striker, 22, has been linked with a summer switch to a number of European clubs, including Liverpool, PSG, Barcelona and Real Madrid.
But SportBild claim the RB Leipzig hitman has is set to head to the Allianz Arena. The issue now is when Werner, who has scored 13 goals in 25 games for RBL this term, will head to Bavaria, with Bayern still to agree a deal with Leipzig.
Werner’s agent, Karlheinz Förster, has a deal in place with Bayern to see his player move to the club by 2020. The German international’s contract is set to expire in the summer of 2020 and Leipzig are desperate not to lose him for free.
Bayern are yet to submit an offer for the player but their agreement puts their Bundesliga rivals under pressure to sell. Werner has earned a growing reputation for being one of Europe’s most exciting players under the age of 23.
His goal scoring exploits, which have seen him score 45 league goals over the last three seasons, have seen him linked with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United.
The Merseyside club were believed to have been strongly interested with a move for the 22-year-old. However, Werner could be set to join Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez in joining Bayern this summer.
Such a big players list
Manuel Neuer, Mario Gotze, Sebastian Rudy, Robert Lewandowski, Mats Hummels, Serge Gnabry, Niklas Sule and Leon Goretzka are just some of the many big Bundesliga players to join Bayern in recent years, with VFB Stuttgart’s World Cup winner Benjamin Pavard also tipped to join in the near future.
